high. what do you expect out of cvs with this environment you're talking about. >> well, we like the stock fair number of reasons. i think it's the right stock for the environment. we're in an environment where i don't think we're going to see tremendous growth because of the economy so companies that can grow their earnings at double-digit levels will be in favor. cvs is one of those companies. they're also giving you revenue growth. you get a little bit of a dividend, raising your dividend. earlier at 30%, and the stock is still a reasonable value trading at 13 times 2013 estimates. it's a stock that's also a play on obamacare and health care going forward. >> tom: give us 30 seconds on f.i.t.b., another one you're putting money to work for and it has really nicely. >> it has. we're seeing better scores in our models. you get a yield of about 2.5%. the stock is cheap at 10 times earnings. they're buying back over 10% of their shares. there's been insider being in the stock in recent months. i think there's a lot to like. i think the earnings story is improving. and, again, i th

's one of the characteristics of most addicts. narrator: environment is also an important element in determining the risk for addiction. dr. mccaul: because it's not like other genetically-affected illnesses that will express, to some extent independently of the person's behavior, or how the person interacts with their environment. this problem is very uniquely dependent on how the person interacts with their environment. if they don't expose themselves to the agent at risk, to the alcohol or to the drug, they'll never develop the disorder. narrator: the fact that drugs are so prevalent in our society just increases the environmental risk of exposure. poverty and drugs seem to be partners. wherever there is a lull in the environment or the economy, it looks like drugs just come in-- the use of drugs, the ability-- drugs just come in. you can go to any community that is not of color, and it will take you blocks to find liquor stores. in our community, and this is mostly people of color-- i've seen this also in the california-- mexican-american, texas-- there's a liquor store on eve
about emotional, financial, social, spiritual and environments, occupational and intellectual as well as physical aspects of ourselves. we call this the eighth dimension model of wellness. this is how we conceptualize wellness. we care about physical wellness because people are physically sick and many are dying 25 years before the general population. we care about intellectual wellness because we need healthy minds and healthy bodies in the knowledge to reclaim and manage our lives in recovery. we care about social wellness because the conditions bring about social isolation, leading people further from their healthy recovery. we care about spiritual wellness because disease, all these diseases, robs us of our sense of meaning, purpose and spiritual connectedness. we care about mental and emotional wellness week as people need clear, wide lines in order to live productive lives and pursue recovery. we care about environmental wellness because it's impossible for people to feel better or well in places or spaces where there is overcrowding, stress, pollution and other toxins in both p

to control our preferences. we are victims of our environments growing up. we are victims of our context that we live in and, therefore, we all, you know, are not "responsible for that behavior and therefore should be mitigating." when you look at the testimony that comes in, whether it's from a mother or from neighbors or from teachers that are talking about really mitigating circumstances, they are the rotten social background kind of arguments, the abuse and the suffering that that individual experienced and those things show up in the brain. the brain is also a sponge. the brain isn't simply created by genetics and it's very much shaped by environment. and so my mentor john monaghan likened the problem of predicting violent people to predicting violent storms. when you think of meteorology, you think of the difficulty of classifying a hurricane and tracking a hurricane, making judgments about such complex behavior that has sort of chaotic premises underlying it, you're going to make lots of mistakes. you're going to make lots of mistakes in both directions. sometimes you're going to
and innovate our new ideas for the new economy and our mutual obligations on the environment, and then there is something that paris and san francisco hold very dearly and that's an ongoing conversation about our human rights as world leaders, so it's human rights, it's the environment, it's the economy and these are the reasons why we hold our relationship with paris and with all the other great cities of the world in a sister city relationship so dearly, we learn from each other, we send delegations to each other, we welcome each other to the city but in each and every instance, we are always thinking about ideas about how we can help each other and help regions improve, so i am excited to have met with the mayor just a few minutes ago to reaffirm our relationship and we'll sign that in a few moments to document that and to promise each other that we will continue this very great relationship and we could not have done it without the involvement of our private citizens, tom horn has led a fantastic group of volunteers on our sister
and they're deathly. are you removing kids from a learning environment and giving up on them and bringing that down to 4% is really huge and i attribute that to board leadership and restorative practices, leadership at the school sites and to principals and claudia anderson and her team. finally on the test score what is is really clear to me is the achievement gap just persists so in our district the average in english is about 61% of proficient or above which is okay. that's two out of three kids that are proficient or above but we have some groups performing at 85% and some at 35% and one in three proficient or above is just not acceptable. nobody can really say that proclaims success and only one in three this a sub group are proficient and above and math 68% and pretty good overall. we have some students performing at 89% and others at 40%, just two out of five. to close this gap with single dkg itd growth would take 20 years we don't have 20 years so what is really clear from the data is the investment in the superintendent zone, with the school improvement grant, the infusion of
environment providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere for the families. we feel that the families progress through the program living life on life's terms because they experience everyday living. they take care of their children. they cook for their children. they get their children up to go to school. so the benefit of being in a one-shop model where everything is onsite is such a benefit to the families. i think, overall, the families here at the exodus program respond really well to just the genuine concern that our staff displays to them on a day-to-day basis. one of the things that we try to do as early on as possible is to try to have our clients develop a real positive support system. whether it be through church, through meetings, through other peers that are here at the program, reconnecting with their family members. i think that's definitely the first step. well, having a place to live and being around other families that are like ours is very helpful because i feel like we get to help each other. and it's not just me getting help. i see that i am not alone. i enjoy that all of
've opened up an environment for them where it's okay for them to tell me how they feel and talk about what they experienced during my time of addiction and that-validate their feelings. and that it's okay. and they have learned how to trust and move on and are doing fantastic in school and have just really become amazing children, despite the trauma that they experienced at a young age. and this is a key word, fran, trauma. that is really the main issue here. the notion that the kids are traumatized and the trauma really does take a long time for folks to heal. correct? correct. and trauma has a lot of-there's an extended definition of trauma. we used to think of trauma very narrowly and now we're seeing that both in several different cultures and, in this situation of families with young people living with addictions and mental illness, the trauma can be very subtle and doesn't show up until they are adults. the trauma can be very severe and needs to be intervened with right away. so there are all different levels of trauma, but the good news is we also know so much more and we are-all of
, by getting a much more sensible regulatory environment and, yes, repealing obamacare. these are the burdens that we've got to remove. >> moderator: now time for our closing statements, and by the order of the coin toss, congressman cantor goes first. cantor: you know, i think what you've seen tonight is certainly a robust discussion, and, um, a debate though, frankly, that has been peppered, unfortunately, with what is wrong with politics today. and that is just a rash of personal attacks, indirect attacks on my family, and as we saw repetitive disregard for honesty and truth. and the thing is, none of these negative attacks do anything to create a job, do anything to educate a child or do anything to bring down the deficit. but attempts at attacks and character assassination the way that mr. powell's been about tonight, frankly, make it a lot harder to solve problems, to compromise, to sit down and actually get something done. but i think that, mr. powell, you underestimate the decency of the voters of the seventh district, and i've had the privilege of representing this district for almos
that in a crisis environment at the 11th hour, some sort of arrangement will be made that will delay the fiscal contraction that's on the books now. so that the economy will continue to grow in the first half of next year, but at a slow pace. >> susie: thanks, joel. joel prakken, chairman of macro economic advisors. >> tom: still ahead, what's worse than training somebody and having them leave? not training somebody and having them stay. an on the job training program designed to create new jobs. in just a few hours, president obama and governor mitt romney will face off in the first presidential debate. as both candidates fight for votes, each has clear objectives: governor romney needs to rebuild momentum for his campaign, and the president is looking to widen his lead in the polls. to do it, they're each using their own sets of numbers. darren gersh breaks them down, and tells you what you need to know about them. >> reporter: for challenger mitt romney, tonight's debate is his best chancto sell hielf to voters who are still undecided. and one way to do that is to focus less on facts and agg
. >> as it is needed. you asked that question. i wanted to clarify. that's something i think was an ideal environment for these concepts. it is limited to that geographic area. and i believe firmly that it would be very successful because it would be done with a lot of thoughtful application of these concepts. it won't be with a sledge hammer. >> right. >> on the issue of congestion pricing, there is a larger policy. what i will tell you is this. the environment that we had when we did the mobility and pricing study was such that in addition to hitting a major recession, which is not a great time to be having a conversation about charging anybody more for anything -- >> right. >> we also i believe did not have the region prepared for this. and that is a situation that we often have. we in san francisco tend to lead the charge on ideas that then take some time to mature in the region. the region is also coming along. the region has already, since we did our study, implemented some form of pricing on the bay bridge, for example. where there is a larger charge. i think we are moving in that direction. t

can be. liz: how do you deal with the low interest-rate environment or refinancing loans and losing a couple basis points on every loan? >> it is true this extended low-interest rate environment is not favorable to bank earnings. liz: ben bernanke ordeal with it? >> i can also understand his position that stimulus hit the economy. it is good for bar worse to have low interest rates and now we have lower rates from short to long it is easier to borrow or give people reasons to borrow so last time we checked we made money when people borrow loans. it is good for us but it does shrink the spread on our loans. that is why you have to be cost-effective, acquiring good clients and looking at how to generate more business. liz: they expects fourth quarter loan growth? >> as we have talked about it we continue to see among our commercial clients that they continue to borrow and acquiring competitors and investing in business and doing things commensurate with an industry that returned to profitability. they are not hiring which is part of why we talk with ben bernanke about q e 3 and the th

a more global environment offers many benefits and increases competition and thus reduce cot cost. it allows for the introduction of new technologies ab cob accepts and supports coalition war fights efforts or makings them less difficult to execute. we can benefit from the lessons learned in efficiency gains from other nations who had militaries that face difficult financial services and forced to drive home the own, quote, better buying power initiative. globalization is frankly not an option. it's a reality. but while buying from a more global environment officers many benefit to the department we must be aware of the significant risks risks. these include but are not limited to the main reason we're here today. the threat of counsel fit or interior parts entering the supply chain, the potential for undue reliance on actually con configuration may not be understood. or the risk of leaked intellectual property to foreign businesses and governments. when it comes to articulating the failure of policy on the subject, particularly as a relate its to cyberspace. one look no further t
and my environment and to me the value of the local and about the city and i am partial to the urban environment. i love it and that is why a study of. i went to public schools my whole life and it was from the teacher who said hey you might like doing this and spent time after school and they introduce me to an excellent opportunity or someone who sat after school with me and went through different topic source said i didn't understand it might debate coach in high school not being paid to spend but spent an extra six hours per week coaching. these are all things that i found made the character of my life and they all happened not by way of some sort of large institutions not by way of -- that was my local experience and what i found in a very homely city and you hear the characterization of cities or urban environments as you get lost and this has not been my experience and this is not what the local represents of returning to what i find to be the salient theme is that cities and local politics and local institutions are really fit on the greatest opportunity. you can truly access
a respectful, open environment for all their children and families. children like to feel good about themselves. they enjoy the feeling of not only knowing who they are but also that others appreciate them, respect them, and value their participation in and contribution to the group. children know differences between people's skin color and gender at a very early age... man: ok, guys. child: hey, des. second child: hey, des. third child: hi. he's got his sister. you're his sister. hendrick: which is why it's so important to begin a program of cross-cultural, non-sexist education as early as possible. woman: what we're going to do is... hendrick: our message is a simple one-- that being different, whether in sex, race, culture, or ability, does not mean inferior. or everything was blue. not like that. you said you wanted that shirt. now, wear it. woman: doina, ian gets to decide what he wants to wear, just like you picked that pretty white dress for wearing. hendrick: our challenge in this program is to learn how to teach the principle of equity-- that, while we don't all have to get along with
of cisco, having the experience that you've had at yahoo! tell me how you see the environment changes and where specifically you would expect growth to happen in technology in the next five years. >> well, i think technology in general -- probably the biggest challenge is not so much the social interactions but everybody's talking so much about data. data is very, very hard to mine correctly. so i think you're going to see a push back towards a lot of enterprise apps that really figure out how it get information to the companies so they can actually be more personalized for the user, but easy to say, a lot to do. >> and really quick, on what you're seeing out there, how tough is europe right now for technology? what are you seeing in terms of the global slow down? >> well, europe continues to baffle us in general in technology. it looks like it's getting softer, not stronger. you know, companies that diversified over the past 20 years do make sure they had good portfolios in all the regions, you know, are taking a hit now with europe. i think it's broad based, so it shouldn't be a kno
at the international trading environment and worry about that. this is the answer to your question. a world and which the united states is strong but all of the institutions is eroding is not a world of 2011. the united states has an interest in trying its best to shore up institutions. >> this is great. >> get set to run it, john. >> a couple of quick points. my thesis is not the institutions are independent. they are instruments of power. they are used to signal limits on power. power is never divorce from institution. a venture that regard, i idea that the united states has been so brilliant for half a century or longer because, it has allowed it to make the power more durable and expensive but also making it more delimited and less based on arbitrary use of power and the most traditional sense. there are a vehemence of republican allow for the state to be more influential by allowing it to signal its own strength. a couple of more point about this. my underlying argument is that we are shifting from one organized around trilateral world, the u.s. rip germany, japan, the kind of trilateral system.
with the fact that we're in, to put it lightly, a highly unusual climate and environment right now with long-term interest rates being held at 0% for quite some time. >> well, one of the ironies and one of the sad elements of glad path and target date strategies today is they are pushing people more and more heavily into bond at a time when bond yields with more negative. you're not making money, you're losing money by investing more and more in bonds. so we wind up becoming enablers of bad behavior in washington and supporters of that bad behavior by buying more and more of the bond when yields are negative. >> bob, have you a wonderful reputation and a great record built around the idea that you turn conventional wisdom inside out, whether it's fundamental indexing or this assault on the conventional thinking in target date funds. but i wonder what the real risk to the fund business is if these target date funds -- which certainly imply that you're going to have a set amount of money on a certain date. what if they don't work out and what should the assumptions be if i'm an investor on wha
the business environment and balance for transportation access. i would like to touch on the background and talk about the major issues and summarize the requested actions for you today. jefferson street project is an effort led by the city planning department who worked with the community benefit district and the larger community where many issues were addressed and shaped the final project. the project manager from city planning is here and available today. the city's department of public works is the project's sponsor to implement the construction, and john thomas of dpw is also here today. the city is supplying $5 millen to fund the work. in 2008 to 2010. the city planning department completed the fisherman's warf plan which includes the proposed jefferson street plan, jefferson street is the main commercial spine of fisherman's warf. the east end is near pier by powell street. jurisdiction includes all sidewalks and up to the building faces on the south side. the jefferson street plan is bold, for the two blocks before

in an incredibly dangerous environment. >> so basically he was sitting duck? >> some of the reports we heard that the ambassador's position, his location was betrayed by the libyan security guard, loyal to terrorist outfit. it shows how bad it was. >> so so do you think the administration can be too trusting, there is freedom in libya, khadafy is gone and just think nothing like this would ever happen? >> absolutely. unfortunately it's probably true not only in the context of libya take the invasion of embassy in cairo where our flag was put up and al-qaeda flag was put up. egyptian government didn't fulfill its obligations but the embassy was sending out messages as we recall trying to appease the demonstrators. i think this mindset permeated the administration and the state department. i think that was one of reasons that our adversaries saw vulnerability. >>> what does it mean for the broader issue of american foreign policy? >> i think the subsequent events was there a cover-up because of politically inconvenient that al-qaeda's is surging and war on terror is not over? is it the obama's
". the second study was described in the "new york times" in its environment section on the front page that described data that indicated san francisco bay along the embarcadero may rise 3 feet in the next eight years. the findings of the two studies merit careful consideration of land use questions confronting san francisco. i have described these to the planning department and the port commission and the board of supervisors. approving such significant capital projects should be based on the best and most scientific data preparing against flooding will be expensive, but it is important not to ignore the city's safety based on the most recent data that we have. thank you. >> thank you. is there any additional public comments? seeing none mr. chairman can we close public comment? >> yes. >> okay. public comment is closed. so mr. chairman i move that we forward this to the full board with a positive recommendation. this proposed community safety element went through a very, very lengthy thorough process and public vetting with public hearing and i think it's very, very strong and d

[applause] >> thank you, bob. >> you for your leadership. good morning, everyone. we are going to be talking about something that i have been very interested in, and that is mobility. the ability to have technology work for you, like this microphone. we have worked hard for a number of years. i had the privilege of working with gavin newsom in the past to during his administration to create the electric vehicle infrastructure for the city and began the conversation and the collaboration with the other counties to bring an electric vehicle corridor. it signals our efforts to support the creation of infrastructure to the electric vehicle industry. of course we have encouraged the private automobile creators
health and safety and environment because we are discharging into the bay and into the ocean. this is essentially the first treatment here at our waste water treatment facility. what we do is slow down the water so that things either settle to the bottom or float to the top. you see we have a nice selection of things floating around there, things from bubble gum wrappers, toilet paper, whatever you dump down the toilet, whatever gets into our storm drains, that's what gets into our waste water treatment and we have to clean. >> see these chains here, this keeps scum from building up. >> on this end in the liquid end basically we're just trying to produce a good water product that doesn't negatively impact the receiving water so that we have recreation and no bad impact on fish and aquatic life. solids is what's happening. . >> by sludge, what exactly do you mean? is that the actual technical term? . >> it's a technical term and it's used in a lot of different ways, but this is organic sewage sludge. basically what it is is, oh, maybe things that come out of your garbage dispo

there is no doubt that we will hold on to their promises on the environment. [applause] of course, there was a time when it looked like they got it. it seems like a long time ago, and there is the naturalist face. the windmills are gently turning, the sun is shining, and the exercise is quite brilliant. partyen at last year's conference they ruined it all, that you can vote blue and go green, but of course you can't. in order to at -- in order to make blue turned to green, you have to add yellow. and that is what we are doing. [applause] what a generous audience. as we plot to prosperity, please remember that nothing that we do will make a decisive business if we don't make the most important investment of all, in investing in the training of young people. the legacy of the educational inequality is an economy operating at half power, never getting the qualifications that they could get, never turning the wages that they could earn. the true cost of this cannot be counted in pounds alone. this is a huge drag on the economy, but more than that, this is part of the natural justice and everything that
for the damage that we are doing out there in the environment. if we can have the two second thought, i have a bag to reuse and that is great. >> the city will hand out free reusable bags at more than 50 events across the city during october and november. >>> well, just last year there was talk of drastic service cuts, now, cal trains is adding trains to meet demand. starting tomorrow, new trains will be add in. ridership hit a new high in june leading to the expansion. >>> a small grass roots breast cancer walk sent a powerful message. 30 people walked today on the 2nd day of the immediate impact breast cancer walk. the idea began in march as a response to the controversy over a national group, susan g.komen for the cure which refused funding for planned parenthood. they designed to walk for a local group instead. >> i think that they have lots of people to answer to and we just decided that it was -- we wanted to direct our attention locally instead of getting confused in the big national political conversation. >> so far the group raised $93,000 and are confident they will reach their goa

to stimulate cargo. the cargo has to be there from the manufacturers and from the general economic environment. but next year, the car go industry might pick up a little bit. the conditions for cargo are still very bad now. but again, overall the industry of course is still more passenger than cargo. and it's been a bit of a double whammy this year because for the long call carriers operating out of asia, they're heavily exposed to markets like europe where there's been an impact. >> are we going get anymore meaningful consolidation? i don't see eus saying to america you should really allow for proper mergers between european and u.s. airlines. do you think that's ever going it to be allowed? >> there's still a lot of steps to be taken to allow that to happen. true global consolidation, a lot of countries still have policies that limit foreign investment in the airline sector. so we need to see a lot of changes in the regulatory environment to allow that to happen. in the meantime, we did see a lot of consolidation continue to happen within regions like latin america, like north america, like

of the environment ministry. reconstruction minister at the sue woe hirano is holding on to his position. noda explained some of the reasoning behind the shuffle. >> translator: this reshuffle is aimed at strengthening cooperation among officials to have government and the ruling parties and improving how the cabinet if you thinks. so we can better handle the issues we face. >> noda also referred to the territorial row with china over the senkaku islands in the east china sea. he said there is no doubt the islands are inherent japanese territory both historically and under international law. the prime minister noted japan controls the island, but he added both sides should stay calm as they try to resolve the situation. >> translator: i think the most important thing right now is to find a way to cool things down using dialogue through various channels. >> noda says he has no plans to take the senkaku matter to the international court of justice. that's what his government is trying to do with the territorial dispute it has with south korea. the arguments by the two countries have been heated,
will make the environment better. we had approximately 1,000 overflows occur in 1999. today, we've reduced overflows by 45% to 50%. and it's going to continue to improve as we go forward with the rehabilitation program that's required under the consent decree. narrator: an important piece of the program is the construction of an 8-mile-long storage tank that will significantly decrease combined sewer overflows. man: right now, we're at the bottom of the rockdale construction shaft. we're 310 feet below grade, deep under atlanta in hard rock. in the downtown area of atlanta, the sewer system and the stormwater system are combined and there are overflows during storm events, and so the purpose of this system is to relieve that flow, take it into the tunnel, transport it to a brand-new treatment plant, clean up the chattahoochee river. narrator: instead of the combined sewage overflowing into the river, it will flow into this tunnel that acts as a storage tank. the water will then slowly empty into the new plant for treatment before it's released back into the river. man: the system in total

[ applause ] >> thank you, carl. now we're going to move from the talk about the tech explosion to one of our most significant economic generators, which is the hospitality industry and i think we're going to have some breaking news this morning, if i can call it that. and see some of the first visuals of the moscone center expansion. at least i think so. so we're so fortunate -- i'm not going to waste a lot of time on the introduction, but have i to say that joe, president and ceo of sf travel association, formerly san francisco convention bureau is one of the leaders of the city and has done so much for the industry and for sf travel. and he is going to tell you about the plans for the moscone center expansion. he has done so much and created the san francisco tourism improvement district in 2009 and that actually is helping fund this whole structure. so i'm just going to let j

director of environment in our city has issued a goal for 2020, being mission -- emission free, carbon neutral. that is something that when you think about the economic impact of these new business models, it can contribute quite greatly to that. i am going to answer the question a little bit differently -- i have been inspired by this space considerably. there's a lot more opportunity. cars, so many assets we have in our society. as a city, we own buildings, cubicles, museums, golf courses, so much that we have -- >> yes, but it is our property, right? >> yes. that is a very good point. stewards of these resources, and they are often underutilized resources, so how do we improve access to those? there is a lot to learn from this that could be applied to the public comments. >> thank you. let's open it up. do we have a microphone for people to come to? ok, we will just it old school. if you have a question, raise your hand, and speak loudly. concise questions will be greatly appreciated. >> [inaudible] >> did everyone here that? ok. >> something that is really amazing about the sharing
to be cognizant of the great history we have, the environment, and everything else as we move forward. we're going to have the four breakout sessions. we will go into this later about how we will integrate systems. these six recovery support functions are not stovepiped. someç of you mayç think you nd to go into each and every break out. theyç do cross over. that all depends on each other. çremember that as we workç toe integrated and move forward. they all work together. when we go out and to the fieldç using a presidential declaration as the starting peace -- piece, when we go and setup a joint field office,ç last year we haa record 98 disasters declared in the united states. about 0.5% or five of those, we deployed in federal disaster recovery coordinator to work with the communities and works through the issues. we still have folks out there from hud and other agencies providing recover its support functions. whether it is presidentially declared or not, who do you need out there immediately to have your communityñr and the citizes taking care of as it looks to rebuild? this can
to be in this high-risk, high-profile tense environment? nobody loves that. >> no but i think certain people rise to the level of the performance. bill clinton you always got the feeling that he was very happy to be there. >> jennifer: it makes me smile thinking about it. you also say that governor rom any has a few of these flaws as well. he could be overly cautious he lacks spontaneity. he appears awkward and whiny. and he might be boring. if you were comparing the flaws of either one of those, which would you rather be? >> i think i would rather be obama. however, i do think they are fairly evenly matched. and in some ways there are similarities. i see both men as being men more about the intellectual side of things and not the emotional side of things. nay are both a little bit aloof. but the clip we looked at where mitt romney loses it about the rules, that was the most impassioned we have seen that. but isn't it interesting he is not getting passionate out of issues, he is getting passionate because he feels like somebody is cheating him out of his time. >> jennifer: exa
and retail business are rising. and also in some lines of the industrial business. so the overall environment for the insurance industry is very good. your free float is about 20%. will you stop here for a while or will you raise money in the future? >> we'll raise money in the future, however, not for the next 24 months. we are sufficiently capitalized now after this ipo on for the next 24 months, but there will be further capital increases in the future. this is just our first step in to becoming a listed insurance company. >> all right. and just give us your view where we stand at the moment with the world economy. because it's interesting where you're looking at your operations. eurozone still in the grips of recession or low growth, weaker growth in asia. just give us your sense of how you view the world and how it transfers back into your business. >> i'm 100% sure that the euro will survive. the euro is instrumental for the future of europe. the emerging market particularly in brazil and mexico are very interesting growing markets for the future. and also the middle and eastern europea
